201. vhost/virtio different qemu version test plan

201.1. Description

This test plan will test pvp different qemu version test cases, also cover virtio 1.0 and virtio 0.95.

201.2. Test flow

TG –> NIC –> Vhost –> Virtio–> Vhost –> NIC –> TG

201.3. Test Case 1: PVP multi qemu version test with virtio 0.95 mergeable path

  1. Bind one port to igb_uio, then launch testpmd by below command:

    rm -rf vhost-net*
    ./testpmd -c 0xe -n 4 \
    --vdev 'eth_vhost0,iface=vhost-net,queues=1' -- \
    -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>start
    
  2. Check dut machine already has installed different version qemu, includes [qemu_2.5, qemu_2.6, qemu_2.7, qemu_2.8, qemu_2.9, qemu_2.10, qemu_2.11, qemu_2.12, qemu_3.0].

  3. Go to the absolute_path of different version qemu,then launch VM with different version qemu:

    qemu-system-x86_64 -name vm2 -enable-kvm -cpu host -smp 2 -m 4096 \
    -object memory-backend-file,id=mem,size=4096M,mem-path=/mnt/huge,share=on \
    -numa node,memdev=mem -mem-prealloc -drive file=/home/osimg/ubuntu16.img  \
    -chardev socket,path=/tmp/vm2_qga0.sock,server,nowait,id=vm2_qga0 -device virtio-serial \
    -device virtserialport,chardev=vm2_qga0,name=org.qemu.guest_agent.2 -daemonize \
    -monitor unix:/tmp/vm2_monitor.sock,server,nowait -net nic,macaddr=00:00:00:08:e8:aa,addr=1f \
    -netdev user,id=netdev0,hostfwd=tcp:127.0.0.1:6002-:22 \
    -chardev socket,id=char0,path=./vhost-net \
    -netdev type=vhost-user,id=netdev1,chardev=char0,vhostforce \
    -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=netdev1,mac=52:54:00:00:00:01,mrg_rxbuf=on \
    -vnc :10
    
  4. On VM, bind virtio net to igb_uio and run testpmd ::

    ./testpmd -c 0x3 -n 3 – -i –nb-cores=1 –txd=1024 –rxd=1024 testpmd>set fwd mac testpmd>start

  5. Send packet by packet generator with different packet sizes(68,128,256,512,1024,1280,1518),repeat below command to get throughput 10 times,then calculate the average throughput:

    testpmd>show port stats all
    

201.4. Test Case 2: PVP test with virtio 1.0 mergeable path

  1. Bind one port to igb_uio, then launch testpmd by below command:

    rm -rf vhost-net*
    ./testpmd -c 0xe -n 4 \
    --vdev 'eth_vhost0,iface=vhost-net,queues=1' -- \
    -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>start
    
  2. Check dut machine already has installed different version qemu, includes [qemu_2.5, qemu_2.6, qemu_2.7, qemu_2.8, qemu_2.9, qemu_2.10, qemu_2.11, qemu_2.12, qemu_3.0].

  3. Go to the absolute_path of different version qemu,then launch VM with different version qemu, note: we need add “disable-modern=false” to enable virtio 1.0:

    qemu-system-x86_64 -name vm2 -enable-kvm -cpu host -smp 2 -m 4096 \
    -object memory-backend-file,id=mem,size=4096M,mem-path=/mnt/huge,share=on \
    -numa node,memdev=mem -mem-prealloc -drive file=/home/osimg/ubuntu16.img  \
    -chardev socket,path=/tmp/vm2_qga0.sock,server,nowait,id=vm2_qga0 -device virtio-serial \
    -device virtserialport,chardev=vm2_qga0,name=org.qemu.guest_agent.2 -daemonize \
    -monitor unix:/tmp/vm2_monitor.sock,server,nowait -net nic,macaddr=00:00:00:08:e8:aa,addr=1f \
    -netdev user,id=netdev0,hostfwd=tcp:127.0.0.1:6002-:22 \
    -chardev socket,id=char0,path=./vhost-net \
    -netdev type=vhost-user,id=netdev1,chardev=char0,vhostforce \
    -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=netdev1,mac=52:54:00:00:00:01,disable-modern=false,mrg_rxbuf=on \
    -vnc :10
    
  1. On VM, bind virtio net to igb_uio and run testpmd:

    ./testpmd -c 0x3 -n 3 -- -i \
    --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>start
    
  2. Send packet by packet generator with different packet sizes(68,128,256,512,1024,1280,1518),repeat below command to get throughput 10 times,then calculate the average throughput:

    testpmd>show port stats all
